Repair Café

HEAT are in discussion with the Rotary Club of Hungerford and the West Berks Repair Café with the idea of running a Repair Café in Hungerford.

We hope to run a Repair Café on Sunday 25th July on the Croft Community Field. Please spread the word and start gathering your items which could be fixed!

If you do have repair skills, and would be interested in volunteering (or indeed hosting the event), please do get in touch, we would be very happy to hear from you -> heat_hungerford@yahoo.com


The following notes were taken from a webinar by CAG Oxfordshire on how to set up a community repair group

Notes on Setting up a Repair Café

Summary

Repair Cafés allow you to bring items which are broken, to have them looked at by someone who knows how to fix them, and to have the item fixed if it is possible.

Items to bring include electronic appliances, machinery, textiles, and woodwork.

Repair Cafés help to reduce waste, to encourage the sharing of skills, and to bring a community together.

In order to set this up we would need a team of volunteers who would be willing to lend their skills fixing things!

If you are interested then please get in touch by emailing HEAT, and if you know someone who would be interested, please send them our details!
